07 Jul
The Recruitment and Vetting team are continually looking at ways in which we can improve the services that we provide to our customers; however, due to well-documented funding reductions from central government and the administrative effort involved in providing our services, we have had to review our arrangements.

The new service prices will be as follows: Service Price Enhanced Disclosure (DBS Fee and Administrative Charge) £40 + £20 = £60 (was £54) Standard Disclosure (DBS Fee and Administrative Charge) £23 + £20 = £43 (was £37) External Validation Check (if applicable) Remains at £2.00 per check Business Unit Admin Training and Identification Verifier Training £50 for 2 hours initial training and £25 per hour for any additional training required The Volunteer DBS charge £20 (admin fee only).
